Program Itinerary of the Merzouga 4×4 Excursion
Merzouga is surrounded by quaint villages and great scenery which can be explored with the aid of 4x4s.
This Merzouga 4×4 Excursion starts from our location and then takes a thrilling drive through the desert dunes spotted with black volcanic rocks, which get you to a few villages, on the route made famous by the Paris Dakar Rally. Visit the seasonal lake of Merzouga.
Then, stopover at Khamlia village, listen to some Gnawa music (Optional) to mingle, and possibly have some mint tea with the locals. Please keep in mind that Gnawa musicians, buying a CD (cost about 10€) or a tip is required, therefore one of the two options is obligatory otherwise you can skip them and continue directly to the Lead Mines in Mefes.
Mefes is a small almost abandoned town on the other side of the Erg Chebbi dunes, known for its minerals mines such as iron, zinc, and lead in particular. These mines have been started since the French colonization.
Later, we continue our 4WD excursion to visit nomad people living in Berber-style tents on the edge of Erg Chebbi dunes. The last thing you will discover in this Merzouga 4×4 Excursion are the Gardens in Hassi Labied village.
